Children’s Book Drive
The Friends of the Glen Lake Library invite you to help extend the gift of reading with their annual book drive for children of disadvantaged families. With assistance from Parenting Communities at Glen Lake Schools, the Friends are collecting donations of new children’s books. Browse a “wish list” at the library or at the Cottage Book Shop, which extends a generous 20% discount on books purchased for this program, along with free gift-wrapping. Books should be delivered to the library by December 14th, or to the Cottage Book Shop by December 15th. Books will be given to young readers in our community in time for the holidays. If you have questions about this program, now in its 21st year, please contact the library.
Stories & More: Thursday mornings @ 11:00 am
Another year of Stories & More for Preschoolers will begin on September 12. These lively sessions are lead by early childhood education specialist Joanne Beare, and feature stories, music, crafts and other learning activities. Preschoolers, including toddlers, along with their caregivers are welcome, with no advance registration required. Thanks to the Friends of Glen Lake Library for their ongoing support of this program.
Tech Help Desk
If you need assistance with common computing, smartphone or tablet issues, contact the library for a referral to one of our volunteer tech tutors. They’re available to help you learn the many tools available on your device: email, text-messaging, camera and photos, clocks and calendars, notes and reminders, apps, and more. Our tutors can also help you learn to download electronic books and media from the library. However, please note that our tutors can’t provide technical support for hardware or software issues. If you’re interested in volunteering for this program, please contact the library.
Lakeshore Readers book group
Our resident book group meets here in the library each month, typically on the last Wednesday, to share their insights and observations about the selected title. Their lively meetings are open to the public, with guests always welcome. A list of upcoming selections can be found on our calendar. Please note that the library generally owns only one copy of each selection. Additional copies can be ordered through MelCat or may be purchased from the Cottage Book Shop or other local booksellers.
